When great musicians come together, amazing things happen. Be sure to be present when these international stars of the Early Music scene make music together in public for the first time.
The members of the jury, soprano Emma Kirkby DBE, soprano Tuuli Lindeberg, tenor Anders J. Dahlin and harpsichordist Lars Ulrik Mortensen, join forces with a hand-picked group of musicians from the Nordic Baroque Scene, choosing pieces from their favourite repertoire to share with the festival audience.
Dame Emma Kirkby first entered the music scene as a breath of fresh air in the 1970s. Hailed for her brilliant nightingale-like voice and her non-diva way of interpreting Early Music, her recordings soon became the gold standard within this repertoire. Now she leans on a whole career’s worth of performing experience, when she hands her knowledge on to future soloists in the Aria Borealis Bodø Competition. In this concert, she joins in with younger singers of the jury, Tuuli Lindeberg and Anders J Dahlin. In addition to these singers and select musicians of the four NBS orchestras, the harpsichord legend Lars Ulrik Mortensen can be experienced live in this concert. A dynamic force field of a musician, he is not easily forgotten, once seen in action.
Between these strong musical personalities and their hand picked pieces, this is sure to be a concert night to remember.
